We print and produce placards attached with wooden sticks ready to use. Placards are the go to choice for protest marches or local street advertising (for example arrows pointing to your shop or business) or any kind of ‘walking street signage’.
Our placard boards as standard are made of 4mm corrugated plastic boards (Correx®). Correx® boards are lightweight, strong and cheap at the same time, making it the ideal material for the production of placards.
Placards can be produced single or double sided, double sided placards are produced with two separate boards attached on either side of one wooden stick. We also offer two lengths of the sticks depending on your preference. Shorter placard sticks are better for holding the sign in the air while walking, longer sticks are long enough to rest them on the ground. The latter may be a more comfortable option when there is not much need for carrying the placard and therefore a more preferable option for street advertising and standing protests. You can also lean on the stick while walking for better comfort.
Some of most common uses of placard boards are all kinds of pickets, demonstrations, protests and strike actions organised by workers or labour unions (trade unions). Being very lightweight, Correx® demonstration placards are ideal for marching longer distances and, as mentioned above, you can have two different lengths of the sticks to suit your requirements. Also, our picketing boards/posters can be tailor-made in case you have any special requirements regarding size or shape.
We print full colour directly on Correx® boards with UV long lasting inks. This means there is no extra charge for more colours and you can even have photographs printed for the same price.
If you need a different shape of the board, we are able to produce custom sized boards. Our routing machines can cut signs to any shape so all kinds of shapes like ovals, stars or arrows are possible.
We print and assemble all placards in house, meaning that when they arrive with you they are ready to use with no messing around.
No, we produce our double sided placards with two separate boards attached to either side of one wooden stick, meaning no part of your artwork will be covered up.

Yes, 4mm and 6mm Correx® signage boards can be cut to custom shapes. There is some limit to how intricate the shapes can be - so you would be best to send over an example of the shape you wish to cut when asking for a quote. Correx above 6mm is generally not suitable to custom shape cutting, we have other materials that may be suitable to your needs if you’re looking for a thicker board, like foamcore and Foamex.
Yes, you can make use of Correx® signage for both indoor and outdoor use.
